Soooo, I guess it come down to what bike to use for this event? Prep a 450 or buy a 690 and prep that one?

What fuel range is required?

Am I also understanding it correctly that no fuel containers allowed other than the bike's integral fuel system means no Rotopax's allowed this year?

Thanks, I understand about bladders and coke bottles, but specifically what about Rotopax fuel containers, which mount pretty securely onto the bike: there was a 690 in 2014's race that used this option, is that now excluded for 2015, do you maybe know?

270km.  In mostly sand.  On a 690, that means approx 22 l.

From Alex: •You will not be allowed to carry fuel in bladders or bottles of any kind. All fuel must be mounted to the bike permanently and make up part of the fuel system. (As per FIM regulations. NO EXCEPTIONS)  A rotopax must be removed to pour the fuel into the tank.  As it is not plumbed into the fuel system, it will not be legal.

Sh!t. Thanks for clarifying, but it means I have go and spend MORE money on front long range tanks, was planning on only my 4.5 litre Rally-Raid rear tank plus a Rotopax, but this is now not an option unfortunately it seems.

It might be do-able, depending on how risk averse you are.  I used 20.5 l on stage 1, where lots of people ran out.  I think the before and after liaison was 115km of the 275km.  The rest was sand.  I have a Vortex ignition on my 690 which makes it a bit heavier on fuel than a regular one.

If the sand was more or if I got lost, I would have used more.

With the entry fee being what it is this year, risk averse I certainly am!

So, I am looking at the Rally-raid Evo 2 tank kit now, doesn't seem to be toooo unureasonably priced! I spoke to Rally-Raid and the Evo 1 option (and therefore its local copies by the likes of Omega) do not fit the 2014 690 under the new shape shrouds, so Evo 2 it will be it looks like.

Do I understand the entry process correctly - you can only send in your entry form after you have paid all three instalments of the entry fee?

Or, can you send in your entry now and pay off your entry fee?
